deadline. you know that paul ryan and patty murray have been working on a framework. they're talking about something like a trillion dollars, which is more than paul ryan wanted, less than patty murray wanted, but also talking about new fees to raise revenue instead of tax hikes. from what you're hearing this general framework, could you support it? >> well, it depends. the trillion dollars you're talking about is higher than what the existing law is and i would point out that speaking of existing law, we have one that specifies the level of discretionary spending. specifies that at $967 billion. so from my point of view if we're going to spend more than that, then we ought to find offsetting savings some where else, which i'm very much open to. i know our friends on the other side of the aisle want there to be revenue. we're not going to support tax increases. are there some categories of revenue that are of a different nature? >> such as? >> for instance, federal employees have very generous retirement plans. if we asked them to contribute a little bit more to their retirement plan, that

to health care put forth in the paul ryan budget would end medicare as we know it and cut $810 billion from medicaid, effectively ending medicaid as a meaningful program for the american people. they have no alternative as it relates to providing health insurance to otherwise uninsured americans. our plan as put forth through the affordable care act is to meaningfully try and fix a broken system. that's a debate that we as democrats should embrace. >> congressman hakeem jeffries of new york, thank you. clay johnson is with the department for better technology, a presidential innovation fellow. he's been the person i have been following most closely in analyzing the website. so, clay, looking at the website today, hearing the administration's updates yesterday, what's your sense of how far things have come and what does it tell us about how bad things were? >> well, it's a great deal of relief to me that the website seems to be up and operational. i tried it out earlier. i'm on the individual market as a small business owner, and so, i have to shop for my own health insurance, so i got a bit
